This curriculum guide from British Columbia is divided into five parts. Part 1, on using the guide, first explains the place of the guide in the provincial curriculum development and articulation processes. Four purposes are defined; the scope of the curriculum is outlined; and an overview of curriculum aim, learner goals, and topics is given. In part 2, the curriculum design is presented, beginning with a background survey of the current state and future needs in adult basic education (ABE) Mathematics. Guidelines for specific program and course planning are included, with representative course designs. Part 3, (Learning Tasks and Resources) contains a systematic array of mathematics topics, including descriptions of typical learning tasks keyed to a limited selection of resource texts. Part 4, (approaches to Teaching and Learning) presents a variety of ideas for instructors to consider in planning ABE mathematics instruction, including brief sections on principles and methods of adult learning, math anxiety, problem solving, computers, and issues in evaluation. Part 5 contains a list of selected instructional resources and professional references, along with a list of publishers' addresses. The final pages constitute a response form for users to comment on this draft curriculum. (MNS)
